A is for avacado and asparagus


The Aztecs allegedly called the avocado "ahuacatl" - their word for 'testicle'... but if that doesn't turn you on (it doesn't do much for us either) avocados are at least a veritable treasure trove of vitamins and good stuff.

They contain Vitamin B6, which is said to increase production of male hormones, as well as potassium, which helps to regulate the female thyroid gland - not sexy but at least you'll look and feel pretty good.


The humble asparagus spear is a powerful aphrodisiac - not only does it look a bit phallic but it also contains Vitamin E, which makes you gorgeous (think healthy skin, hair and nails) and is also said to be a sex hormone booster. Delicious.
